Excellent!

Guess what present everyone left on my list is getting for Christmas!

Edit:

Will there be an option for a regular sized calendar as well?

I just want to thank the moderators who had a very difficult task put before them to narrow all these beautiful pics down to so few! :D Special thanks to Mark for coordinating this too!

Congats to all the other winners - I can't wait to have one of these hanging on my wall! :D

It's excellent! All the pictures are lovely. I've been waiting for this as it's on my Christmas list and I've just made an order :)

I've found men are equipped with a trait that allows them to be completely oblivious to hints.

HAHA Yeah I've noticed that ;) My hints are not that subtle anymore as a result :lol:

Congratulations Charlie :) x2

I was a little surprised to see 2 of mine in there as well :D so proud of my little supermodels.

Just replying to let you know that I've received the calendar I ordered last week. It's massive and excellent quality. The pictures are even more beautiful on paper :)

Excellent work! This will certainly make a difference to the usual calendars with kittens, puppies, ducklings etc. that I get given for Christmas :D

How do I get my axolotl's gills to look like October's???
Osiris says thanks for the compliment! :D

I believe it's a combination of oxygenation, water flow, diet, and genetics. Others may have different opinions...There are many beautiful axolotls out here. :D

    I currently have a 3 year old axolotl, he hasn't been eating for the past couple of weeks and has lost a lot of weight. Hedwig usually eats bloodworms and earthworms just fine but now he won't even stud it. I've done a water change to make his nitrate lower and his water is at a good temperature
